Pre-Engineering

PRE- ENGINEERING PROGRAM AT KAUA'I COMMUNITY COLLEGE! 

The Associate in Science in Natural Science (ASNS) degree program with a pre-engineering concentration provides the first two years of an engineering student’s education, preparing the student for continued study in a baccalaureate degree program. The courses provide the student with a strong science and math background regardless of the chosen field of engineering, as well as many of the required general education core requirements. Most of the courses are required by all engineering schools for all fields of engineering.

Program Requirements

Qualified for MATH 241 and qualified for ENG 100.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics to fundamental chemical and physical science
    applications
  2. An ability to write programs and use computer hardware and software to solve pre-engineering
    problems.
  3. An ability to work in teams on a significant and meaningful design experience or project.
  4. An ability to analyze and interpret data.
  5. An ability to use modern engineering tools.
  6. An ability to communicate effectively using oral, written, and electronic venues.
  7. A recognition of the need for life–long learning.
